Thomson Reuters Corporation (TSE:TRI) has announced the operating metrics for its Forex electronic trading platforms Matching, FXall and the Thomson Reuters SEF for August 2015. The activity was obviously bolstered by the upsurge in volatility towards the end of last month, as spot FX trading volumes staged a rise in both monthly and annual terms.
Let’s examine the particular numbers.
- Average daily FX spot volumes in August 2015 totaled $119 billion, up 17.8% from July 2015 and up 11.2% from August 2014 levels.
- Other trading volumes (forwards, swaps, options, etc) averaged $245 billion in August 2015, which is 2.8% lower than in July 2015 and down 1.2% from August 2014.
- Average daily FX volumes for all platforms were $364 billion in August 2015, up 3.1% from July 2015 and up 2.5% from August 2014.
